Laser skin resurfacing FAQs

What are the side effects of laser skin resurfacing?

The side effects of laser skin resurfacing can include redness, itchiness, and inflammation. Other possible side effects include bruising, bleeding, scabbing, and blistering. Additionally, there is a small risk of scarring with laser skin resurfacing.

Is laser resurfacing painful?

Laser resurfacing is minimally painful. During the procedure, you may experience some mild discomfort. You may feel like you have a sunburn for a few days after treatment. This can be relieved with over-the-counter pain medications.

Which is better chemical peel or laser resurfacing?

When considering chemical peel vs laser resurfacing, it is important to understand the benefits and limitations of each procedure. A chemical peel removes the damaged layers of skin, while a laser resurfacing removes damaged layers of skin and stimulates new collagen growth. Since laser resurfacing has more profound results, it is generally more expensive and requires more recovery time. However, experts often find that laser treatments are more controllable than chemical peels.

How long does laser skin resurfacing last?

The longevity of laser skin resurfacing is dependent on the type of laser and treatment settings used. Typically, results last 3-5 years. However, with proper aftercare, you can maintain stunning results indefinitely.

How does laser skin resurfacing work?

Laser skin resurfacing works by removing skin layer by layer in an accurate way. This process causes the body to regenerate healthy new skin cells. The laser energy causes the damaged skin cells to be removed and triggers your body to produce new healthy skin cells and collagen.

How often can you do laser skin resurfacing?

The answer to this question really depends on the type of laser being used, the type of skin condition being treated, and the individual patient’s unique healing process. To achieve ideal results of the laser skin resurfacing procedure, it is usually recommended to perform several procedures at intervals of 2 – 4 weeks.
